Trauth · 5 Summary characters Show Time A Dodie ODell Mystery #1 Of bloody homicide   Intrigued by rumors of vanishing box office money Dodie has agreed to help oversee the casting of Romeo and Juliet at the modest Etonville Little Theater If nothing else it’s a welcome escape from the thirty something’s usual going to bed with a mystery novel routine But when Jerome Angleto. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Lyrical Underground Kensington Books in exchange for an honest reviewThis is the first book that I have read by this author I include notes like this so that readers of the review know where I m coming from if it s the 1st book I ve read by an author my interactions with the author s work would be different than this had been the 21st book I ve readThis book is a cozy mystery set in New Jersey There is something of a romance but not capital R romance As far as I can tell everyone in this book is heterosexualCharacters Main Dodie O Dell is a woman who has a degree in management and had lived her whole life on the Jersey Shore except for an internship in Pittsburgh Hurricane Sandy though has forced her to relocate what with the restaurant that she managed damaged there might have been something about a damaged dwelling as well I forget now She found another place to manage though in a small northern New Jersey town called Etonville She works at Windjammer which is directly adjacent to the Etonville Little Theater ELT a place that puts on plays using live actors And a place that Dodie is talked into helping out at Police Chief Bill Thompson is the chief of police Former NFL player Former member of the Pittsburgh police Suki Shung is a police officer and possibly only non white person in the entire town Ralph Ostrowski is a police officer and lazy Edna May is the police dispatcher and actress at ELT TownspeopleOthers Lola Tripper is a former high school teacher who is connected to Walter and acts in ELT productions Carol hairdresser and mother of Pauli Pauli is a computer geek who helps set up a website for Dodie s restaurant Henry owner and chef at Windjammer Is tense because a newish restaurant La Famiglia has opened up in the town and Henry has always been the best restaurant in town Benny works at Windjammer Elliot Schenk former and current member of ELT Works or worked in finance on wall street Penny Ossinging incompetent stage manager Morty and Marshall Wendover work many businesses including authentification of documents Random mix of others there are others mentioned some with lines some without but who play a small enough role I can shove them here in others Without naming Murder Victim Jerome Angleton is an older man a retired high school teacher who worked in the box office at ELT and at times acted on stageRomanceThere are at least four or romantic relationships mentioned in this book not counting the part where the play Romeo Juliet is being staged for a performance by a small theatre Most are learned along the way one or would be kind of spoiler y to mention now The only one I can mention directly would be the one that is ongoing when the book opens that of Lola and Walter Lola s Dodie s friend and Walter is the director at the Etonville Little Theater One of the romantic entanglements plays a key role in the book but most are just there in passing And one the only one that shows bits of Romance ie getting lost in someone s eyes etc is not actually at the official dating stagePlotDodie who has relocated from Jersey Shore to Etonville works as a manager in a restaurant Her first day either working at Windjammer or in Etonville she meets Lola who becomes something like her best friend Which leads as such things can do to a friend asking a friend for help Or in this case Lola asking Dodie to help out in the Etonville Little Theater they are attempting to stage Romeo and Juliet and they could use all the help they can getSo Dodie works in the restaurant and over at the theater Occasionally meets up with other friends including Carol the hairdresser and Jerome someone who has a tendency to come over to sit with Dodie during her evening break One thing leads to another and things begin falling apart at the restaurant not really just some delivery issues and at the theater numerous conflictsclashes of personalitiesdeath Naturally when death rears its head Dodie decides to investigate especially since it involves her something like a friend Jerome Involves as in he s dead now MurderedBoth Dodie and the police investigate The police in the form of Chief Bill has an odd relationship with Dodie in a thanks for the information don t get in our way way Also the police seem incompetent than I d expect In a certain things turn up the police should have seen or found out in routine investigation but strangely didn t I d say incompetent than I d expect because they have the feeling of being competent people other than lazy Ralph yet they keep doing certain things wrongly shrugsOverallI liked the book though there were a few areas I found annoying Dodie s experience and knowledge base seemed to fluctuate Like how she just loves libraries but has never visited Etonville s library and acts uite shocked at the idea that libraries might have computers Then after one visit bluntly states that she knows the whole layout of the library Or how she s an acuaintance of Jerome s but acts shocked that the guy would have any interests beyond mysteries she knows he likes mysteries because he shares his books with her per chance he knows she likes mysteries so hasn t mentioned liking other things HmmsThen there s the part wherein already so overwhelmed by the responsibilities heaped upon her that she becomes ill during the course of the book she still believes that she is better able to handle investigating murder Than the police But then this is a cozy mystery involving an amateur detective or in other words I already knew this issue before going in And the police did kind of ask for her help of a if you hear anything and less of a please investigate But still despite those few moments of discomfort on my part I enjoyed the book Would recommend it Probably something I d rate somewhere between 38 and 42 starsMay 12 2016
